Quilt May 21 Meeting

A big WELCOME to Judy who joined our group today. We're so happy to increase our little group. Judy loves to cross stitch. She's working on this project .... photo of one of her granddaughters. You send a photo to the company who in turn charts it, assigns colors and returns it to you. This photo doesn't do a thing for the project .... it was fantastic.

Nancy is working on a new girl quilt ...... remember those twins that were to be boys but .... he he he were girls.

Becky is hand quilting that adorable table runner she made at the "outhouse quilt retreat".

Check out Sharon's bee ..... can you hear him buzzzzzing

Margee made a commitment to herself the beginning of the year to learn how to applique. Sharon taught Margee her method of applique today.

Now for the hand stitching .... adorable humming bird.

A friend's ex-MIL passed away recently. Her stash landed at my house where I sorted everything. Nancy is busy picking her favorites to add to her stash.

This was also in the box. I hope to be able to finish it in some manner. Any ideas?

Also in the box were batting wrappers with patterns from the 1950's.

Helen is checking out some of the books from the MIL stash also books from my, Sharon's and Marilyn's (our leader) stash.

Betty is almost finished with her baby quilt from 2 weeks ago. She learned a new technique for binding today.

Helen is making this adorable little quilt. The colors, pink and blue, are nice and bright.

Nancy must of learned a few new things today ...... check it out she's writing in her quilt journal .... way to go Nancy.

Nancy and Betty are learning the ladder stitch from Marilyn. Love that ladder stitch .... it's so great for lots of things like applique and bindings.

Marilyn and Becky are planning something I do believe.

We missed Carol, Michiel, Cathy and Sharyn today ...... hope to see you next week.

See you next week, May 28.
